Definitely. I haven't bought a new marker in about 10 years (plenty used though), but I started playing at a larger field more regularly and hopped on a team recently so I bought a brand new Etek 5. I've been shooting more people out and it's been completely hassle-free so far. Sometimes it just feels good to buy a fast marker that just works. Electros have come a long way in the last 10-15 years and I've come to love PE's markers.
That being said, I do have a nice pump that sees play time at smaller games or with rental players if we get mixed in. The most fun I have is with my cockers though. They still have the speed when I want it and they have so much soul every time I pull the trigger. That's a feeling that won't easily be forgotten.
